Export Development Canada is paying a $969-million dividend to the federal government this year.
The payment compares with a dividend of $786 million the agency paid last year and $500 million paid in 2016.
EDC generates revenue primarily from interest on loans, fees on its guarantee products, and premiums on its insurance products.
The crown corporation says it finished 2017 with $60 billion in assets and earned $1 billion for the year.
